Esperança's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy more agricultural surplus from smaller farmers to sell in the market in order to increase her income.


Esperança's story

Esperança is a 34-year-old Mozambican woman. She is married, and she lives in Manica Province with her husband and their five children.

She is an optimistic and very hardworking woman. She has worked in agriculture since she was young. She produces a variety of crops such as maize and veggies, but she found a good market in the commercialization of agricultural surplus.

Since she was unable to supply all the crops demanded by the market, she started collecting agricultural surplus from other smallholder farmers and she never stopped.

Esperança's main crops for agricultural surplus are common beans, maize, and veggies.

Now, Esperança needs more money to invest in her activity in order to maintain the good range of clients she has. For this reason, she is requesting another Kiva loan to buy agricultural surplus from smaller farmers to sell in the market in order to increase her income.
